Performance Catamarans

Nacra A2 A-Class Catamaran

   

Designed by Pete Melvin of Morrelli & Melvin Inc. and Jeremy Laundergan of Askeland Engineering, the new Nacra A2 A-Class Catamaran builds on their success with the Waterat A-Cat they designed in 1996. Pete Melvin won the A-Cat World Championship with the Waterat in 1997 and the design went on to win five consecutive North American Championships.

The new Nacra A2 A-Cat design features low wetted surface area hulls with a high longitudinal righting moment to resist pitching. The low profile bows reduce windage and provide a clean entry for both light air and hull flying conditions.

The Nacra A2 and A3 and hulls, daggerboards and rudders are fabricated by Morrelli & Melvin Inc. and feature vinylester resin infused carbon fiber skins. The carbon Hall Spars mast is autoclave cured. And the beams are prepreg carbon. Performance Catamarans, Inc. assembles the components and provides marketing, sales and distribution services.

The International A-Class Catamaran is a high-performance “box rule” International Sailing Federation design specification dictating an 18-foot long, 7-foot wide catamaran with 150 square feet of sail area and a minimum weight of 165 pounds. The class has been steadily gaining popularity in the US since the World Championship was hosted in Long Beach, CA in 1997.
